The German Weather Service continues to warn of severe storms. See where it’s raining or storming heavily.
Thunderstorms with sometimes extreme heavy rain have caused great damage in many parts of Germany. And it’s not over yet: The German Weather Service (DWD) predicts severe weather for parts of Germany until Thursday. Extreme storms could occur in North Rhine-Westphalia, Rhineland-Palatinate, Saarland and parts of Hesse, the meteorologists announced in Offenbach on Wednesday. Extreme continuous rain or prolonged heavy rain could lead to 50 to 100 liters of precipitation per square meter by Thursday morning. Locally up to 200 liters are possible. ‘The probability of occurrence of corresponding quantities is quite certain, but the focal points are still uncertain,’ says the DWD.
According to the forecasts, the rains on Thursday will decrease in the west and increasingly move to the southwest and south. ‘There then repeated shower-like rains and sometimes strong thunderstorms are possible,’ said the DWD. However, the quantities in the area are no longer so pronounced. Thunderstorm heavy rainfalls could not be excluded locally, it said.
